    Early last year, after six hard months soldiering in Afghanistan, a group of American infantrymen reached a momentous decision: It was finally time to kill a haji.

    Among the men of Bravo Company, the notion of killing an Afghan civilian had been the subject of countless conversations, during lunchtime chats and late-night bull sessions. For weeks, they had weighed the ethics of bagging "savages" and debated the probability of getting caught. Some of them agonized over the idea; others were gung-ho from the start. But not long after the New Year, as winter descended on the arid plains of Kandahar Province, they agreed to stop talking and actually pull the trigger.

    He was a smooth-faced kid, about 15 years old. Not much younger than they were: Morlock was 21, Holmes was 19. His name, they would later learn, was Gul Mudin, a common name in Afghanistan. He was wearing a little cap and a Western-style green jacket. He held nothing in his hand that could be interpreted as a weapon, not even a shovel. The expression on his face was welcoming. "He was not a threat," Morlock later confessed.

    Morlock and Holmes called to him in Pashto as he walked toward them, ordering him to stop. The boy did as he was told. He stood still.

    The soldiers knelt down behind a mud-brick wall. Then Morlock tossed a grenade toward Mudin, using the wall as cover. As the grenade exploded, he and Holmes opened fire, shooting the boy repeatedly at close range with an M4 carbine and a machine gun.

    Mudin buckled, went down face first onto the ground. His cap toppled off. A pool of blood congealed by his head.

    And all under CIC Obama's watch too. Does this mean all who supported Odumbo have blood on their hands?

    This sounds like "Nimrod in the Old Testament" who hunted men instead of animals for "sport".
     
  4. The soldiers must be freed with IMMEDIATE effect.

    They are American heroes who have killed many terrorists. Even if they killed a few non-terrorists, they have done good work for the alliance.

    They should be allowed to kill more Taliban.
     
  5. Leftists like Free Thinker do not distinguish combatants from non-combatants. They believe if the guy wears civilian clothes, he must be an innocent civilian. Free Thinker won't consider a Muslim as a bad Muslim until one shoves an IED up his ass. [​IMG]
     

  6. Isn't there a wall somewhere you should be bobbing at with a propeller in your beanie?

    Seriously, are we going to hold Obama responsible like we did Bush or is this just an "isolated" incident. What's the old saying...the buck stops here.

    If this happened under Bush the bleeding hearts would be crying for impeachment and or prosecution for war crimes.
     
  10. i dont recall bush being held responsible for Abu Ghraib scandle or the pat tilman coverup or the torture abuses.
    bush was responsible for trumping up false evidence for an excuse to attack iraq but he was never held responsible for the war crimes that resulted that were approved by him personally. he should have been.
